With a budget of $150, they go to Mood. Keith and Kenley butt heads a little bit. He interviews that her opinions are so strong, it can be a bit insulting at times. She's in love with this really bright, flowery print. Keith doesn't look as excited. Daniel interviews that his tastes are more refined than Kelli's -- though we see her ask very specifically for his opinion on a fabric combo and he says he thinks it's pretty. Daniel's a bitch.
Back at the workroom, the designers have 10 hours to work. Jerell and Stella get right to work. Tim enters and tells the designers that he wants to emphasize how large a prize the winner of the challenge will be receiving. Accordingly, there is no immunity for this challenge.
In the sewing room, Daniel asks Kenley if she likes the design on which she is working. She says she doesn't, that it's not her style. She interviews that she is working on a flowy chiffon skirt, which is a departure from the structured pieces that she usually makes. Someone off screen tells Kenley that they don't think she's going anywhere and she replies, "Better not be."
We see Daniel showing Kelli the progress he has made on the skirt portion of their design and she tells him very brusquely that it's "almost" there. She interviews that she likes to do things herself, a personality trait she attributes to her upbringing. Her parents weren't really around, so she essentially raised herself with the help of her handicapped grandmother. Because of her disability, her grandmother hasn't been able to enjoy much of Kelli's work, so being able to see it on Lipstick Jungle (or Project Runway) would be a huge deal for her. OK, that's pretty touching. Kelli has had it rough.
There are problems in Terri's world. Rayon says that he is afraid to cut the fabric, because they don't have a lot and he's afraid of screwing it up. She looks at him like he's speaking in tongues. He interviews that he draped the top, which is the most elaborate part of the outfit. And, there's really not enough fabric to cut what he draped. And, there's no time to drape it again. Essentially, it sounds like they have to be perfect and can't re-cut if there are mistakes. In the sewing room, Terri asks him how the sewing is going and he says that he's very uncomfortable. Terri interviews that she doesn't want the challenge to be about her doing everything, but every time she looks at Rayon, he has a look of concern in his eyes. She says, "I don't know what he's packing -- balls or vajayjay, but he needs to work that out, 'cause I ain't got no babies, ain't nobody sucking on my titties, so please, man up." OK, I'm inclined to think this is funny because she's talking about Rayon and it's just funny when ladies talk about their titties. But, there's some gay slurriness to her comments that I find a little bothersome. Not to mention the mixed metaphor quality of the insult (first we're calling him a girl, then a baby, then a girl again -- infantilize or emasculate, make up your mind). Most importantly though, a certain word choice annoyed me. School's out, the bell has rung -- VAJAYJAY IS OVER. No more. Let's just call it a pussy again, shall we?
